Officers also received a report that a masked man entered Dena’s Salon in Ewe Lambs Lane, Bramcote Hills, at about 5.30pm on 6 April 2018.

After demanding cash from the till and property from staff and customers he fled with a quantity of cash and a customer’s mobile phone.

Hartwright was arrested on 11 April on suspicion of robbery. He has been remanded in custody to appear at Nottingham Magistrates' Court tomorrow (Friday 13 April).
